Christmas: Part 1

Katelyn loves all things Christmas... well, most things Christmas, anyway.

Funny thing is, she likes looking at pictures of Santa, wasn't scared when we were standing in line, and even likes to say "Ho Ho Ho" herself. My parents have pictures of me being equally dramatic.

Safe distance was a candy cane.

We drove around to look at Christmas lights, and Katelyn LOVED it. She constantly said "Ohhh! Ohhh!" and if we passed more than two houses in a row without lights, she frowned and said, "More? More?"  It was really fun.

She is fascinated by the Christmas tree. I modified ours this year. As much as I wanted to put up our beautiful glass ornaments, I didn't know if our little pink tornado would go crazy and pull the tree down. So I opted for non-breakable ones and lots of bells instead.

More to come!

We had a great Thanksgiving! We went to Mississippi to be with the Taylor family. 

Katelyn quickly identified and befriended MawMaw and said her name all weekend. It was sweet!

She found a latex glove and immediately put it on her arm. It dawned on me later that she picked that up from school, where the teachers wear gloves to change diapers.

She CONSTANTLY asked me to go outside.

Playing with Daddy...

...and Papa. I love Mississippi in the Fall!

 Post- sidewalk face plant. Sometimes leaves just have to be chased!

She was fascinated (and highly entertained) by the bunny statue.

Such a big girl!

Playing one of PawPaw's old autoharps. I love this because it reminds me of children's choir in Snyder!

 Ok, so it's not the best family photo, but it makes me laugh!

So sweet.

Katelyn said her first full sentence over Thanksgiving. While watching a dog show with Dave, she pointed to the TV and said, "That's a doggie."  Am I surprised that her first complete sentence was about an animal?
